Yeah DuckDuckGo is about not tracking you so that doesn't make sense...
Anyhow, my personal take. The algorithms aren't as good as Google's. For example, just try searching "Linustechtips website." The first three links are on the forums and his channel, and after that it degrades into his subreddit, random links from places like Wikipedia, a few sites that tell you if linustechtips.com is down, some that tell linustechtips.com's worth, I think I saw his Twitter there, etc. You don't see linusmediagroup.com until after the first all of the page. On the other hand, if you search from google, in the first 4 results two are of the forums, one is his YouTube, and the other is linusmediagroup.com. The rest are his reddit, twitter, and f@h stuff.
Obviously, if I searched linustechtips website I wouldn't have wanted info about if it's down, how much it's worth, or a link to ncix, massdrop, or vessel (yes those were there too), but that's what DuckDuckGo gave me. That's why I don't want to use DuckDuckGo. Google just has a superior search algorithm.
As well, it also has a shopping tab thing where you can shop and check prices of stuff which is REALLY useful to me. I probably use it at least once a day.
Another big thing about DuckDuckGo is that most of the search engines now have filters that tailor the news and links it shows you to who you are. So for example, if you're a strong liberal, most of the news stuff you'll see will probably be from more liberal sites. I think that's the main reason people use DuckDuckGo; to get out of this "filter bubble."
So it's really up to you. If you want to do it, it's not a bad search engine by any means; I think I could say it's better than Bing, though I'd say it's closer in level to bing than google, which isn't a great thing. It does forgo some of the stuff google has, such as the shopping tab thing, google maps results integrated in when you search for directions, reviews, ratings, and general info show up when you search a place, etc. but if you really don't like the "filter bubble" that you're in it's a good place to start.
